In a recent interview published at DPreview Mr. Kenta from Sony confirmed that next generation new generation of Full frame E-mount camera coming soon and in the next part of the interview the he also added that Sony is trying to transfer the Sony A6000 Fast & advance HYBRID AF technology to the upcoming Fullframe E-mount mirrorless camera,
The other important points of the interview are… (via Sonyalpharumor – SAR)
1) we are aiming sport and pro photographers with the next generation(s) of FF E-mount
2) We are seeing the transition from DSLR to Mirrorless happening. DSLR will remain in a very high end niche.
3) The Telephoto prime lens (300mm) is something we get asked to make from our users
4) We don’t know if A and E-mount will merge one day. For now we keep developing booth.
5) The number one key tech to acquire customers is develop auto-focusing
6) Next generation FF E-mount cameras will get more customizability
At the end we don’t want to mention that the Sony A7 and Sony A7R camera was announced on 16 Oct, 2013 and need an update so we may see a new Sony A7 II and A7R II camera soon with advance core specification and new sensor soon.
Now the video interview published at dpreview

According to latest rumors Olympus is testing a new type of PEN camera, the camera is rumored to feature a newly customized CMOS sensor with same size like the original film pens,
part of the article published at 43rumors.com
The pen line isn’t discontinued, rather it’s being taken back to it’s roots. One of the mockups has the sensor in a portrait orientation like the original film pens, the space saved by the shutter traveling sideways rather than vertically allowing a viewfinder above it (still in the center line of camera, which is hard to do with the vertical running shutter, almost all other mirrorless have the EVF on the left hand edge or a hump because of it).
But the source who published the information also suggest that the Olympus management may not approve the camera for final production because it’s too much “risk”.
